Hi Framers.

Here in Australia our professional landscape photographers have been getting their Ilfochrome prints framed with Neschen Adhesives on Neschen Rollers on MDF or Aluminum. This has also removed the Orange peel look you get when mounting Ilfochrome.

I dont print on Ilfochrome but the results are fantastic. I cant afford the rollers but I will be using the pressure sensative adhesive product they produce.

Has anyone ever used their product if so what are your thoughts on it.

Hi Auzziematt,

I used the sticky back boards from Hughes Mouldings, and find them fantastic, It gives you two goes, so if you make a mistake, you get another chance to get it right. Some sticky back boards only give you one try...... not a good idea if you are just learning...

you can use them alone or put them thru the rollers.

Good Luck
Marion

Hi Marion,

You hit the nail on the head. Thats where I am getting them from and they are the reasons why i am going to use them.

I used the self adhesive from Marks and they very average. Do you find you have problems with pimples under the images you mount with the sticky back boards from Hughes.

Hi Matt,

No, I don't find any problems at all. I have used them on old and new pictures and they work great. I like them alot as it gives me a few goes at it.

I have tried a few and I find the ones from Hughes are the best. A bit expensive but worth every penny.

I use a decoupage roller to roll out any air bubbles that I might get and I start from the middle and work out.

Hope this helps

Matt,
I was taught to Static mount ilfochromes only. Ilfochromes are so sensitive and nothing is comprimised with this technique

The image will adhere to the plexi, and then mat over it. no burnish or pressure required (can add small hinge at the top) and absolutely no orange peel and it's easily and instantly reversable.

Hi Froptop,

I have heard of static mounting from reading other posts. I have looked into this alot and I spoke to the supplier of the Neschen Adhesives and Neschen Rollers and he informed me that he supplied the equipment to three of our main Australia Panoramic Photographers who have galleries all over Australia and some over seas in the US such as Peter Lik. They print exclusivly on Ilfochrome.

These guys are selling some of their limited editon prints for $60 grand (Aust)and are mounting this way.

They must be pretty sure of their mounting method.

NESCHEN Gudy-831 high tack pressure sensitive adhesive is my favorite for permanent mounting of photos, inkjet prints and other computer stuff, laminated maps etc.

It's available in 20,40,60,80 and 105cm wide rolls, easy to use and store. You don't necessarily need a roller, we don't have it and do just fine. Gudy-831 only gives you one try, but if the print or photo is perfectly flat you'll do just fine. Wider rolls (80 and 105cm) maybe hard to use first but once you learn the technique it's like a dance.

I have tried the lighter version (Gudy-870?) too but the tack is lower. Low tack is for hobbyists and nerds :D
